Hi, i am hoping someone on this forum can help me with some details of my relatives from the St.helens area.


I am looking for any information on JNO COLKQUIT born 1702 place unknown, his son THOMAS COLKQUITT born 11-01-1734, Sutton, then his son THOMAS COLQUIT born 1759 who married Elizabeth Winstanley at St Helens parish church in 1779.


My grandfather was named Harold William Powell Colquitt & was born at no.31 Exeter st,in St Helens in 1910, he was brought up in Widnes & died in 1990.


What remains of their descendants, myself included now live in Runcorn.


As you can see the surname has changed a little since 1702.


If anyone out there can help me find any information, siblings, spouses or even JNO Colqkuit`S parentage i would be extremely grateful.


Thank you

Hello Colquit,

I am a Colquitt and deep in research into my ancestors - I am currently stuck on my Gt.Gt.Grandfather William who was born in 1784-86 and married to first wife in St.Mary the Virgin, Blackbrook - and possibly baptised there, he was literate and had wealth when he died. I need to establish his father who would have been born around the 1740-50's.

I don't know how much you know about the Colquitt name - but it goes back to medieval times.
